5 THE STREATOR RACES. A Big Openlng-Pplendld Raring In all t'laaaea. The opening of the Illinois Circuit races at. Streator Tuesday was a grand success. The attendance was the largest ever seen on the opening day on any track of this circuit. The races could not have been Hner or bet ter. The number of starters was great enough to give a tine tleld, and the time made was excellent. The winners were as follows: Two-year-old trotting lima sack: best time, 2:41. 2:: pace Lilian Herr; est 2:24i: Gov. Lucas second money, 2:2H trot Duke; best time, Hilly McGregor second money.

Stkeatoh, 111., July 30. -Special.-The races here to-day were very close and exciting and were witnessed bv the largest audience ever assembled at the Streator course. The track had been worked all morning and at the starting of the tlrst heat was in splendid condition and very fast. The four-year-old trot was a battle for blood between Alabaster and Queen Wilkes. Kach heat was a horse race, and the fight for third place was also, exciting. PL MM AH V. 1. Alabaster 2 1 1 2. Queen Wilkes 1 2 2 3. Atlanta 4 il :i 4.

The 3:00 class was a five heat tight which was nobody's race until Mi net te, a little mare whose owner had not announced her on the card, won the final heat. It was a pretty race from start to finish, and the three leaders made it too warm for the pro cession. SL'MMAKV.

The 2:34 trot was a walk-away for Keeler, the Kewanee howler, he tak ing the race in three straight. With the exception of Nellie McGregor's crowding him, the race was a pro cession. SUMMARY.

B. made the sensational performance of turning the track in 2:20. when under the wire as winner of the first heat. Many of the sports went broke on this roan gelding from Exline, for he sold favorite in the pools and was thought to be a sure winner. When, however, he proceeded to lose the next three to Edinburg, the sports swore roundly and could find no abuse too severe for the gelding and his driver. summary. 1. Edinburg 2 2. B.

The first race, the 3 year old colts, wasdistinguishedbya collision between the two starters at the upper turn of the first half in the opening heat. Lessette broke and ran into McGregor Wilkes.smashing both sulkies, though the horses and drivers escaped unin jured. This was declared "no heat," and in the four actual heats of the race the colts gave a fine exhibition of horse racing. SUMMARY. 1. McGregor Wilks 2 1 1 1 2.

At an early hour Tuesday morning ) corn crib on the farm of Bernard I rady, of Ophir township, was laid in : uns. xne crio was situated one- larter of a mile from the house and i ie fire was blazing fiercely when first ' scovered. The crib contained 3,000 isnels of corn, which was totally de- rojea. Mr. Brady did not carry any . .su ranee and the loss is estimated at !,500. The Are is supposed to be of incendiary origin. Mr. Brady has a suspicion as to the guilt of certain parties but it will not be made public. Be prudent and do not spend a dol lar for a bottle of sarsaparula or anv kidney or liver remedy when Dr. Jones' Red Clover Tonic, costing 50 cent, is far superior, and the bottle holds nearly a pint. It cures dyspepsia, constipa tion, loss of appetite, headache, torpid liver, bowel complaint, rheumatism, erysipelas, eruptions and all diseases arising from disordered blood, stom ach, liver or kidneys. It is pure and harmless. Th Iroquoli Club. The Iroquois Club, one of the best known political and social organiza tions of the country, was formed Octo ber 4, 1881. being u reorganization of the old Chicago Democratic Club, which was organized July 20, 1880, and such well-known gentlemen as Claude J. Adams, W. II. Itanium, William Best, I). K. Canv'ton, M. L. Crawford, J. W. iKiane, George 1 Dunlap, W. S. Forrest, M. W. Fuller, Julius S. Grinnell, W. C. Cloudy, S. Corning Judd, L. Z. Loiter, Charles Kern, liole ert Law. i. W. Mitchell, John T. Noves, W. L. Otis, F. 15. Peabody, John K. Prindivllle, M. W. Bobinson, Charles II. Schwab, A. F. Seeberger, E. M. Phelps. II. M. Shephard. Lam bert Tree, M. F. Fuller, George C. McKee M. 11. M, Wallace, A. Williams, A. T. Ewlng, and C. L. Woodman formed the nucleus around which has been built the Iroquois Club. The platform of principles adopted March 14, 1881, may well he considered a model ; In fact, every national plat form adopted since that date appears to have been drawn with special ref erence to the principles laid down by the founders of the Iroquois Club. Even ex-President Cleveland adopted and made more famous the well-known words "public office a public trust," and they have become the watch words of the Democratic and tariff reform party. The principles adopted were a fol lows : 1. the largest liberty of the individ ual consistent with public order. 2. Local self-government. 3. Opposition to centralization. 4. The separate Independence of the legislative, executive and judicial departments. 5. Recognition of the Supreme Court of the United States as the proper tri bunal for the final decision of all constitutional questions. u. An indivisible union of Indes tructible states. 7. Strict maintenance of the public faith. 8. Public office a public trust, admission to which should depend on proved fitness. All appointments to subordinate offices to be made from persons who shall have been found qualified for the duties of the office to which such appointments are to be made, in open and competivo exam ination. No removal of persons in subordinate offices for political opinion or refusing to render partisan service. Opposition to enforced contributions for i)olitical purimses. The official tenure of persons insulordinate offices shall be during good behavior. tt. Tariff for revenue only at the earliest practicable period consistent with a due regard for existing inter ests and the financial needs of the government; and, immediately, such a revision or the present svsteni as shall fairly and equally distribute Its burdens. The first president of the Iroquois Club was lion. K. M. Phelps, to whom due credit should be given for piloting it over many breakers which too fre- quentlv overcome all political and socialclubs. Very few political organ- izations can survive defeat or the party, and even the success of the party, at a general election, usually engenders bickerings and jealousies within the ranks, which destroy the discipline and nar the usefulness of the body, but the Iroquois has demon strated its ability to withstand both defeat and success, and certainly in this hour of its prosperity can look back upon many contests with pride ror the nonoraoie part taken by it. The chief officers or the club and the dates of their service as president are given as follows: Erskine M. Phelps. 1881-,): Stephen S. Gregory, 18f (resigned July 27. 188(i): Walter C. Newberry, 1880-8 ; Robert J. Smith, 1M81MW). While the individual members are free to and always do take active part in local and municipal political con tests, It has never been the policy of the club, as such, to indorse or sup port as a body any particular local faction, candidate or measure. It was formed on a national basis, and has steadily confined its work to national issues, enthusiastically sup porting the national and State' Dem ocratic and tariff-reform platforms and tickets, but leaving purely local matters to i ndi victuals and other organ izations. The wisdom of this policy has been so often demonstrated that but few, if any, now question it. The leading minds in the Iroquois have no desire to copy after or imitate the great New York Tammany, which ttuds that, although it may be able to control the party in the city and largely dictate its policy in the state of New York, when it comes to a national convention its strength at home proves its weakness abroad, and no candidate for president cares to enter the lists relying solely on the support of Tammany 1 tall. Besides its political work, the mem bers of the Iroquois have acquired a wide reputation as hosts in the social world. The first public movement looking to the securing of the World's Exposition for Chicago started in their ranks, and Judge Shepard has the honor or introducing a preamble and resolution in the monthly meeting of the club in May, 1888, which set the ball in motion. Having inaugurated the movement, the Iroquois felt that it was their' duty to push the work, and for many months the members of congress and other distinguished and iiuiutuuiii meii in an parties were sumptuously entertained in the club rooms. The receptions and other like entertainments of a public nature given during late years have served a useful purpose and afforded great pleas ure to all who attended. Among its resident members are a large number or leading business and professional citizens who frequent the club rooms daily, while the list of non-resident members embraces representative men from nearly all parts of the United States who make their homes at the club when they are in this city. In view of the fact that the World's Exposition will attract hundreds of thousands of people to this city in 1892 and 18J3, the Ireouois Club In comes an important factor in social as well i a political circles. The mem bership, aready large, is constantly increasing, and more commodious quarters are already needed, and if a suitable location can be found the formation of an auxiliary buildimr association within the club member ship to erect a suitable building for me use or the club will follow from necessity. The success and standard of useful ness acquired by the Iroquois has stim ulated the formation of similar clubs in other cities, especially in the West and Northwest. San Francisco has its Iroquois Club, and branch clubs nave been organized in nearly every county In California. Denver has a prosperous club modeled after the Iro quois, called the " Greystone." St. Louis has the "Hendricks," Indian apolis one of the same name, Milwau kee the " Juneau," and oher less pre tentious cities, particularly In Illinois, have organizations following closely after the model furnisned by their Chicago brethren.

The coal operators of northern Illi nois, to the number of one dozen, met at the Clifton parlors Thursday after noon to discuss the condition of trade and give suggestions on the situation In the coal fields throughout the dis trict. The attendance was not as largo as it should have been and con seqently very little business was done. It was the first meeting since last win ter and It was expected all the opera tors in the district would attend. As It was, Streator was not represented, and several matters of Importance could not be discussed owing to their absence. Perhaps the races were too interesting to miss, hence the Streator parties remained at home. There is very little doubt but that the price of coal will advance slightly this month. Further than this the operators would say nothing relative to the coal outlook for the coming win ter. Among those present were J. Beck ler, F. O. Wyatt, J. T. Brand, F. A. Lemon, S. Seligmanand J. J. Hughes, Chicago: J. C. Lutz and S. L. Green, Gardner; M. R. Young, Bloom ington: N. W. Duncan, La Salle; E. F. Bent, Ogleshy; George March. Lacon; Peter Belsley. Roanoke: G. H. Ward, Peora; E. L. Morrison, Wenona. A new departure In pills is the "happy discovery" of Dr. Bigelow's stomach and liver pills. They cure without griping, purging or any of the discomforts attending the use of all other pills. A trial of them always leads to a staunch friendship for the present and future. Price 2." cents.

Timothy Driscoll, a resident of Ot tawa nearly 4') years, died at his home on North Sycamore street Tuesday evening, at the age of 08 years. He had been quite ill during the past four months and long since all hopes of re covery were considered doubtful. A wife and two sons survive him. The funeral will take place at D o'clock this morning. Services will be held at St. Columba's church. PROF. SCHREEB HOMELESS. II Ih Home, South Ottawa. Iliirna to the Oriinil I.MHt Might. The pleasant home of Prof. E. Wil liam Von Schreej, ex-High School principal, located on his farm, near the Gentleman plaee. south of Ottawa, caught tire from a defective tlue, at about 5:30 Wednesday evening and was soon enveloped in flames. Every effort was made by Mr. Von Sehreeb and family to save their home, but, on account of the meager supply of water, not even the furniture was rescued, the house burning to the ground in an incrodilly short space of time. The loss, including furniture, is about $2, ;"i00. It is not known that he carried any insurance. Dollars are too large to spend for a sarsa parilla or ot her blood or alterative medicines Dr. Jones' lied Clover Tonic is far superior to all of them, and you get nearly a pint or this excel lent medicine for fifty cents.
